Interstate 87: Adirondack Northway
Now Over 8 Years Old, Best Interstate in the USA!
Lake Placid is one of the premier resort towns in the USA. It was home to two Olympics, 1932 & 1980, and still has the US Olympic Training Center there, as well as all the historic venues. Because of it's high profile history and use for Olympic training, the location is outfitted with world class equipment for all winter events and boasts top notch facility maintenance software so the entire facility can be controlled and monitored from a single interface. It boast high class resorts, lodging and dining set amidst stunning mountain scenery. For the outdoorsmen and hikers, it is a great place to relax and re-supply at good for Adirondacks shopping areas. It provides access to the High Peaks and all the major trails. Also, for downhill skiers, Olympic Whiteface Mountain is right down the road, which is also the most challenging and steepest hike in NY State for hikers. There is also the Olympic Ski Jump towers, one of a kind. I can go on for hours about Lake Placid, but you have to just go there and see for yourself.
|Of all the places in the Adirondacks, Lake Placid is the most cosmopolitan. It's busy night street crowds in season make you think you are in the City; which has a grain of truth because Lake Placid is the only real city in the Adirondack Parks by NY States definition of a city, full time population over ten thousand. Add the summer crowd and you'll under stand why it takes 15 minutes to drive from one end of the "village" to the other. The plethora of marked off crosswalks will really slow you down on NY 86, Main Street. There are short cuts around Lake Placid, like Millpond Road, Old Military Road(CR 35), West Valley Road so you can get from one end of town to the other sans the mob.|
